Heartbeat rate and gender?
 
Did your baby's heartbeat ever correspond with gender? For example, higher with girls and lower with boys?

I had an ob appt today and hb was steady in the 160s. With both DS's their hb were in the 140-150s. My ob said its an old wives tale..but seems to ring true. Whats your take?

Yes, all 3 of my kids did. dd was 160's, ds1 was 140's, ds2 135.

DDC, that has never ever been right for us. Typical HB for our babies is 160 and we have 3 boys and a girl so I guess it was right once :)

Nope, DS was always high 150s to low 160s.

It was for us, all 3 of our girls were in the 160's and our DS was in the low 150's or high 140's. My sister has 3 boys and all were in the 140's-150's and my sil also has a son that was the same, so my personal theory is yes it is a good indicator.
I have my 16 wk check on Tuesday and I'm anxious to see what it is this time...I'll be making my predictions if only for fun! :)

First was 185, girl. Second was 175, girl. This one was 170, and dr told me to expect another girl. He personally does feel like he's seen a correlation in his practice, but nothing scientific or proven.

I also have acne and awful morning sickness, which have actually been proven to be linked to girls. Dr told my DH that his hopes for a boy are long gone. :giggle:

Do you have a link for this? I've done a lot of research on MS and have not come across any scientific studies linking fetal gender with MS severity. FWIW I had horrible MS with vomiting >15 times per day up to week 20 with DS. :)

There's hope :giggle: I have three girls...the first was 165, the second 155 & the third 160.This little bean was 170....and was looking very boyish at my last u/s. I have had HG with all my pregnancies...and this time around has not been any better. I don't think heartrate or MS are indicative of gender.

For me, my girls were above 150 (150-159) and my boy was below 150 (140-149) I guess because it's not a big gap it could go either way. This pregnancy is sticking around 150-155 for me.
